    BOW, N.H. (AP) -- Democrat John Edwards says his experience as a trial lawyer makes him the presidential contender best able to give voters hope — and to give the establishment grief. Edwards, a former senator from North Carolina, has focused his campaign on pledges to change a government system he says is rigged against most voters. "While you shop (for candidates), I hope you will think about two key things: Who can you trust to tell you the truth about what's wrong in Washington, and who can you trust to fight like hell to make it right?" Edwards said...

    (Washington, D.C.) - Presidential candidate Congressman Tom Tancredo (R-CO) responded today to Senator John Edwards’s comments that the War on Terror is nothing more than a "bumper sticker slogan." "If Senator Edwards is saying that the war on terror doesn’t exist, I would agree", Congressman Tancredo said. "Terror is a tactic used by the enemy with which we are at war. The enemy is radical Islam, and if he does not believe that, then he is delusional. America can’t afford a president that is an ostrich, with his head in the sand on this issue." Edwards, in a speech to...

    John Edwards has predicted he can win in the South in 2008. "I think I have the strongest chance of changing the electoral map," Mr. Edwards told the Associated Press earlier this month. "I think we have a great chance to win, not just Ohio, but to win some Southern states." Mr. Edwards is right and wrong. A South Carolina native who was educated and now lives in North Carolina, Mr. Edwards has a built-in edge over his fellow Democrats, none of whom is from the South. Yet, even if he finds a way to translate that backyard advantage into...
  • Edwards: Wealth Doesn't Hurt Credibility

    DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Presidential candidate John Edwards said Monday it's silly to suggest that his wealth and expensive tastes have hurt his credibility as an advocate for the poor. "Would it have been better if I had done well and didn't care?" Edwards asked. Edwards noted that some of the most acclaimed anti-poverty advocates came from privileged backgrounds, including Franklin Roosevelt and Bobby Kennedy. "You could see and feel the empathy they had," said Edwards, speaking from his home in North Carolina during an interview on Iowa Public Radio. (snip) His credibility on the issue has been challenged...

    Against the storm-ravaged backdrop of a New Orleans district, John Edwards will this week become the first Democrat heavyweight to announce his 2008 White House run.The declaration by Mr Edwards, a former senator and his party's vice-presidential candidate in 2004, will kick off a season of official announcements in coming weeks by the major contenders for the Democrat and Republican nominations. The choice of New Orleans, where life is barely back to normal 16 months after Hurricane Katrina, is a clear signal that some Democrats will seek to tar rival Republicans with what many see as the Bush administration's inept...
